Slot games, like any other video game, require a catchy yet unobtrusive background music to keep the player entertained and up for carrying on playing. Specific slot themes may appeal to a person’s identity, and become their ‘machine of choice’.
Slots and online slots tend to have their own special theme, whether it be ‘Ancient Egyptian’ or ‘underwater’. The background music on themed slots should set the mood of the game, so that the player can instantly identify with the overall feeling of the theme.
As well as the long and often looped music, the slot machine may also feature short musical moments to compliment animations and celebratory music for wins, as well as an array of sound effects often used for positive reinforcement.
